Nigerians Will Only Pay For Electricity They Consume - Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that his government is working hard to ensure that Nigerians pay only for the electricity they consume.

He made this known in a series of tweets on his official handle claiming that 1,000,000 Meters has been rolled out for citizens in Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja respectively.

In his words: "Under the first phase of the Presidential Mass Metering Initiative, we are making funding immediately available for DisCos to roll out 1,000,000 Meters in the first phase, at no cost to consumers. Deployment has already started in parts of Kano, Kaduna, Lagos and Abuja."

"Future phases of this Metering Initiative will help us fully meet the 6.5 million deficit of meters nationwide, and will impact an estimated 30 million consumers. All meters under this program will be sourced from local manufacturers and in-country stock, to create jobs."

"We are committed to ending estimated billing in all forms in Nigeria, and ensuring that Nigerians pay only for the electricity they consume," he added.
